Apple’s iOS 13 update includes feature to prolong battery life


One of the most compelling perks of the iPhone XR is its stellar battery life, and if a new report is to be believed, its sequel will be even more impressive in this regard.

Last year's iPhone XR offered many consumers several things that its prcier siblings didn't.

The new cells boast 3,110 mAh, which is a 6% increase over the 2,942 mAh now on the iPhone XR, and this should provide a boost of at least a couple of hours per charge.

The iPhone XR 2 battery pack orders are reportedly granted to China's ATL (Amperex) which are the same guys that got the order for non-exploding Galaxy Note 7 packs after the infamous Samsung SDI batteries started catching on fire.

On its website, Apple explains that the new feature - dubbed "optimized battery charging" - works by getting to know a user's daily charging habits. The iPhone XR showed the world that a robust, nearly premium handset could sport a better battery life. Although the iPhone XS Max is the bulkiest iPhone the Cupertino-based tech titan has developed in terms of screen size, it still houses a couple of batteries with a total capacity of 3171 mAh. GSM Arena noted that the iPhone XR is capable of playing videos for 15 hours straight before it needed plugging in.

The XR already includes the longest battery life of any iPhone, ahead of the more expensive iPhone XS and XS Max, but it now appears 2019's model will see battery life further increase. The rear camera setup is said to be inside a big rectangular enclosure, which is the same design rumoured for the iPhone XS and XS Max successors.

An industry source told the site that while an "L-shaped" dual-cell battery is capable of providing surges in power, an "I" shaped dual-cell battery is still safer and easier to produce in larger quantities. The report states that the iPhone XR has 2942mAh battery.
